Calculation..agghh!


 Share

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm being observed for my PM next week and need to do a calculation lesson with my reception class. I spent all of last term trying to think of exciting ways to teach calculation and have now run out of good ideas! If anyone can help me think of some exciting activites for a calculation lesson I would be very grateful!!

Thanks for your help :D

How about focussing on one more/less - can be linked to any area of the classroom / objects / story. You can always extend top lot of they have it onto 10 more / less (Y1 objective).

Don't know if this is too late, but - looking at addition as the combination of 2 groups, one thing I did with a high ability group that were using the 'add' sign was to take dried butter beans and paint them on one side. Then give each child 10 beans - they drop them onto the table and count the coloured beans and the plain beans. they can then record this as an addition where the total is 10.

Any use?
